Just something im doing at uni and i need some advice from makeup artist/photographers who are all already in this area of the industry. Is there a difference between high fashion makeup and editorial ? what is a commercial makeup artist is there a difference between them?
your input would really help even if its just a small sentence
thanks in advance
The terms fashion, editorial and commercial have different meaning to models and photographers. Fashion makeup (as applied to a fashion model) is makeup which enhances the fashions being modeled. This is different from beauty makeup which enhances the model's features. I haven't heard the terms editorial and commercial used in reference to a specific type/style of makeup. For definitions of common terms see Misunderstood/misused words and phrases.
Some of the more common terms used to describe makeup are: beauty, fashion, special effects, prosthetics, character, theater.
I am puzzled by your question since in your profile you state:
I am currently in my second year at Bradford collage studying and widening my skills for a foundation degree in makeup artistry and special effects makeup and soon to be moving on to my third year to get a degree in fashion and editorial makeup.
If Bradford College offers the courses you've referenced you should ask them.
